AIMS: Fenofibrate and statins reduced the risk of diabetic retinopathy (DR) related treatment in clinical trials. We aimed to determine whether lipid-lowering medication use reduce the risk of DR and its treatments in patients with type 2 diabetes using a real-world health claims database. METHODS: This was an observational analysis using a nation-wide health claims database of the Japan Medical Data Center (JMDC). Type 2 diabetes was defined by the ICD-10 codes with glucose-lowering medication use...

A 47-year-old male presented with bilateral 4 + circulating pigment in the anterior chamber, diffuse iris transillumination, dilated pupils unresponsive to light, and high intraocular pressure (IOP) levels in both eyes. Visual acuity and IOP improved bilaterally with topical steroid and antiglaucomatous therapy. In the 10th month, bilateral cystoid macular edema (CME) was developed and resolved after subtenon triamcinolone injections. CME recurred after cataract surgery in the right eye which was treated with intravitreal dexamethasone implant injection...

Purpose: This study evaluated the effect of intravitreal dexamethasone implant (IDI; Ozurdex) injection for treating macular edema in patients with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) or central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). Methods: This prospective study included 40 eyes of 40 patients with nonischemic BRVO and 31 eyes of 31 patients with nonischemic CRVO who received IDI injection as the first-line treatment for macular edema. The best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) value before and after the treatment; intraocular pressure; optic coherence tomography findings; and all ocular examination findings, including central foveal thickness (CFT) measurement and fluorescein angiography findings, were evaluated for each patient...

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to determine factors predicting resolution of acute pseudophakic cystoid macular edema (PCME) after 6 weeks of topical prednisolone and nepafenac application. Methods: Case records of patients with a clinical and optical coherence tomography (OCT)-based diagnosis of acute PCME were retrospectively reviewed for best-corrected visual acuity and OCT-based parameters at the time of presentation with PCME. In addition, demographic variables, intraoperative and early postoperative factors, and type of treatment prescribed (tapering vs...

BACKGROUND: This meta-analysis evaluated the effectiveness and safety of dexamethasone (DEX) implant and intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) treatment for diabetic macular edema (DME). METHODS: The PubMed, Embase, clinicaltrials.gov website and Cochrane Library databases were comprehensively searched for studies comparing DEX implant with anti-VEGF in patients with DME. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), central subfield thickness (CST) and adverse events were extracted from the final eligible studies...

Purpose: To report a case with macular edema associated with uveitis, a decreased corneal endothelial cell density, and vitreous opacity caused by migrated intraocular antibiotic ointment after uneventful cataract surgery. Observations: A 63-year-old man underwent uneventful sutureless superior clear corneal phacoemulsification and implantation of an intraocular lens in his right eye. Eleven months later, he complained of blurred vision when he gazed downward. Three months later, uveitis, vitreous opacity, and retinal hemorrhage were noted...

Purpose: To report the clinical presentation, multimodal imaging, and management of a patient with metastatic melanoma who presented with cystoid macular edema (CME). Observations: We report a case of a 71-year-old Caucasian male with metastatic melanoma who presented with bilateral cystoid macular edema after being on treatment with a programmed T cell death ligand 1 inhibitor, MPDL3280, for 1 year. Multimodal imaging techniques, including color fundus photographs, autofluorescence, spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT), fluorescein angiography (Spectralis, Heidelberg, Germany), and spectral-domain OCT angiography (Zeiss; California, USA) were performed to evaluate the etiology of his CME and to monitor his response to treatment...

Purpose: To report the longest ophthalmic follow-up and the associated ocular complications of HLA-A29 negative Birdshot-like chorioretinopathy (BLCR) associated with common variable immunodeficiency (CVID). Observations: A 22-year-old man known for CVID presented with a 3-month history of decreased visual acuity OS. Funduscopy revealed significant cystoid macular edema OS, as well as optic disk edema and chorioretinal infiltrates without signs of vitritis OU. No infectious, inflammatory or neoplastic etiologies were identified...

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a global epidemic and affects populations in both developing and developed countries, with differing health care and resource levels. Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a major complication of DM and a leading cause of vision loss in working middle-aged adults. Vision loss from DR can be prevented with broad-level public health strategies, but these need to be tailored to a country's and population's resource setting. Designing DR screening programs, with appropriate and timely referral to facilities with trained eye care professionals, and using cost-effective treatment for vision-threatening levels of DR can prevent vision loss...

This report is on five patients (four men and one woman) between the age of 24 and 66 years old who presented with unclear visual impairment in our clinic between 2009 and 2016 for co-evaluation. The clinical picture included intermediate uveitis, chorioretinitis, panuveitis and bilateral spontaneous cystoid macular edema. None of the patients reported systemic or dermatological symptoms. In all five patients, serological testing revealed a Treponema pallidum infection as the reason for ocular inflammation...

A 50-year-old female who had undergone enucleation in the left eye and brachytherapy in the right eye for retinoblastoma at the age of 2 years was diagnosed with nonproliferation radiation retinopathy 47 years following the initial treatment. The patient had noticed black spots in her vision (scotomas) that interfered with reading. New onset of microaneurysms and lipid exudation threatening the foveola was noted on examination of the right eye. Initial visual acuity (VA) was 20/25. Optical coherence tomography showed no evidence of macular edema, but parafoveal lipid exudation was present...

PURPOSE: To report early formation and spontaneous closure of a full-thickness macular hole that developed after successful pneumatic retinopexy in a patient who had been undergoing treatment for diabetic macular edema. METHODS: Case report of a 68-year-old man with bilateral nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy who was currently undergoing anti-vascular endothelial growth factor treatment for bilateral diabetic macular edema. RESULTS: On presentation, visual acuity was 20/200 in the left eye, and examination revealed a bullous, macula-off retinal detachment with a single horseshoe tear at 12 o'clock in the left eye...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effectiveness of the combination of vitrectomy with kallidinogenase for diabetic macular edema (DME). METHODS: This study was designed as a prospective, randomized, multicenter study comparing 19 eyes of 19 patients who received 150 units of kallidinogenase administered a day for 52 weeks from the day after vitrectomy (study group) with 20 eyes of 20 patients who received no kallidinogenase (control group). The main outcome measurements included logMAR visual acuity and central foveal thickness (CFT) before surgery and at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months after vitrectomy...
